[you are ] >> no, no, governor romney, he's a good debater. i'm just okay. but what i'm most concerned about is having a serious discussion about what we need to do to keep the country growing and restore security for hard-working americans. >> i'm just okay the president says in terms of debating, although i remember back in tpwaeut 2008 he did a pretty good job against hillary clinton. a pretty good job with john mccain. by the way, no sign of lindsay lohan here yet. jenna: where are the celebrities going to come in next. ed you're better than okay. back toed as news warrants in las vegas. i gregg: if she was there you would know it. jenna:ed would be all over that. gregg: the man who wants president obama's job also getting ready for the first debate. governor mitt romney will be heading to denver a bit later today ahead o
of vantage for john mccain, but the polls coming out of pennsylvania again and again show is not doing any better than-15. so basically the state is looking very similarly in terms of its to graphics how the demographics trail for the political support as it did in 2008. the same thing applies to the geographical distribution. you look at how obama is running in the suburbs, similar to how he ran in 2008 and so on. so definitely looking like advantage obama in pennsylvania. michigan is another state where the romney campaign thought they might have iran. this is not happening. michigan is pretty decisively on the side of obama. the geographical pattern of the vote. about as well in the edge for a mature area. the statewide vote in 2008. they're just not much going on there. wisconsin is a state where obviously if there were going to crack the midwest given what's happening with ohio they thought perhaps they could do it in wisconsin. the problem is twofold for them, i think. if you look at the level of demographic change that has taken place in wisconsin, it's actually quite startling acco

that john mccain could not win the presidency. a great american but allows a republican and a terrible senator. and i was sadly correct. not only was he a terrible candid in the middle of the crisis, probably even the best gadgets could not have survived. a financial crisis with an incumbent president that was been wrongly at the seat of george bush in the republican party when it goes back to democratic house important -- but nevertheless i wrote in that book that romney would make a great presidential nominee. i didn't know who the nominee would be. it's not a book about romney. i was proven remarkably impressionable by the 2007 book. the dean of the columbia school of journalism. the new yorkers national political reporter and always the go to guy for national political stories. the profile the in 2005 for the new yorker. it was a very nice piece. he told his liberal democratic leaders, the most influential conservative you ever heard of. okay.

of media speak strategies and former senior advisor spokesperson to john mccain. thank you for joug us. nancy i want to begin with you. for six months they said this campaign is a referendum on president obama's record. now you heard paul ryan saying in his interview with chris that it's about choice. do you see this as a shift in strategy for the romney campaign and if so, is that why? >> i think it's right and proper for both candidates to offer americans a clear vision of their path for the country. i think it's a natural evidence luilgs. any time an incumbent president running against a challenger there is component of that that is referendum, but now is the time where we've got a matter of weeks when people have to cast their votes. now is the time for each candidate to be crystal clear about the direction they would take our country. >> heather: alex us what do you think? >> i think they were energized by the romney-ryan team gets this. when you look at the choice that americans have, it's like mitt romney came straight out of central casting. he has a guy and talking about who i
for president obama. he debated john mccain who is an american hero. and senator obama served with senator mccain. even though he didn't agree barack obama had a very high degree of respect for john mccain looking across that stage. i fear -- he lacks that looking at romney. might not only he as he underestimate governor romney but may show -- this is a huge ri risk, he may show some of that contempt gore showed for bush and that's a huge risk for the president. stick his chin up and look down his nose at you if he thinks -- you are beneath him. if you see that body language -- >> i think that's a real danger. i think that there is not a lot of love lost between these two. i don't think that obama likes romney. think that's why he has gotten so competitive in the election. if you have that disdain coming out in the debate it can hurt obama. people obama is a likable guy, nicer guy. they don't think romney is a nice guy. if romney can equalize the like built zbap i thigap it will hel >> what he did effectively with newt gingrich during the republican debates get under his skin, how -- president ha
camp played the race card on bill clinton, on john mccain, on sarah palin. >> on poor girl -- girl dean ferraro. >> this was a quick turn around. i realized it was nothing but racial dem gogery. they can't run on obama's record, they can't dig up divorce files on mitt romney. so what's it going to be? race. so i wanted to get the book out quickly. as a result, the jack flap indicates well, obama doesn't really engage in the race baiting. when i actually got to the end of the book and wrote those, there is a lot more than i thought coming directly from the president. >> steve: chapter 16, the media cry racist in a crowded theater. you have a list, kind of a laundry list of things that if you support a certain thing, the media quick to label you a racist. for instance, if i were opposed to obamacare. >> racist. >> steve: if i joined a tea party? >> yes, definitely racist. >> steve: if you're a republican or support gun rights. >> and the word the. don't forget the word the because fox news contributor allen colmes brought the word the up with me on his radio show. the. if you say the blac

dan lothian john kerry is playing mitt romney. take a listen to john mccain. he spoke with candy crowley yesterday on "state of the union." john mccain the last man to debate president obama. >> i think both are excellent in their own way. i think you could argue that mitt has had a lot more recent experience. obviously. but also, candy, part of it depends on who's moderating. >> the man's been on the national stage for many years. he's an experienced debate per. this is mitt's first time on this kind of stage. >> paul ryan on the sunday talk shows. the running mate talking down expeations. look at this count. brand-new from abc news/"washington post" this morn ing. who's more likely to win the debates? the president by 20-some points. a lot of americans think the president will have the upper hand on wednesday night in denver. >> we'll see. many thanks. cnn's live coverage of wednesday night's debate starts at 7:00 eastern. >>> syria is expected to try to justify its actions in its bloody civil war when its foreign minister speaks before the united nations general assembly later
beat john mccain by just one point. 49 to 48. but among white men in 2008, he lost by 16 points to john mccain. among white males so far in 2012 romney leads -- you heard some of the leads among other groups but among white males romney over obama 60% to 34%. a 26-point lead among white males. i don't get it. i guess the question is what's wrong with white males. other question is can white males alone save mitt romney? i don't think so. i would love your take on this. help us figure it out. 1-800-steph-12. look what is it about white men? is it they're afraid of losing their job? they're afraid of losing their homes? they're afraid of not getting ahead in the world? they're afraid they won't be able to take care of their families. they're afraid of a black man? what is it? is it racism? is it that they just can't stand the fact that there is a black man in the oval office and you know, they're a white guy and this is a white country and our forefathers were white and what's going on here? we're losing
. the debates sure matter in 2008. going in, obama and republican challenger john mccain were neck in neck. post debates gave obama victories in each case. he soared from there. >> what do we do now? we hear all these polls. the obama cam says we like these polls because they're ahead. the romney campaign says you know what? they're insignificant. what do you think? >> they are and they aren't. a six-point spread among likely voters is not that impressive. it is within the margin of error. but obama's showing is most impressive in those swing states like ohio, florida and pennsylvania. the winner has got to win at least one, preferably at least two to make it. now he has double digit or near double digit leads in each of them. all of which places incredible pressure on mitt romney to change the course of the campaign. >> so what's the game plan for each one of the candidates at the debates? >> okay. the first debate is on domestic policy. fine. that should be romney's bread and butter. he has to find a way to return to his message on the economy. what is the message? mainly that whatever the mes
assumptions. it means to be competitive in this race mitt romney would have to get double john mccain's margin of 18 points among the white working class and go up to 36 points. it doesn't change among minorities despite shifts eligible voters are seeing. if this gets realized minority vote share goes up a couple points from 26% in 2008 to 28% in 2012 and again the minority support stays the same it means mitt romney would have to get a 40 point margin of white working-class voters to win the election and popular vote. let's take a look at where we are based on a recent poll that came out and set the gold standard at the pew research center fold off and they do it right and have a 3,000 persons sampled. it is reliable and they give you a lot of interesting demographic breaks. this shows among likely voters that obama is leading by eight points. if you look at averages in the national polls is a bit high relative to the average which is 4 points. if you look at polls that do it right and call cellphones and not just robot called their up by five points. this is the distance of the averages and
to be on debate night. rob portman is playing obama. he's an eerily precise obama. >> he played obama for john mccain four years ago. >> he did. i spent more time with rob portman as obama than as rob po portman, the senator we all know. both men have a monumental undertaking for the first debate. one of them has to come off as nicer and less arrogant than he really is. and the other one has to come across as more normal and less awkward than he is. >> you talk about president obama coming off as more nicer and less arrogant. he does get irritable in the debates. his team is prepping him for to stay more patient. >> right. think about that for a second. they're asking both men to be someone they're not. that's what makes the debate so dramatic. really, what we're all waiting for, what we're watching for, is the moment when the real man breaks out. >> but more pressure on mitt romney in this debate. if you could say, what is his number one goal for this debate, it is? >> romney needs to have a moment like what some of us saw this week, when bill clinton introduced him, where he had this self-deprecati
, arizona senator john mccain who debated both president obama and mitt romney says he's not expecting any major moments. >> i can't remember the last time there was one of these comments that grabbed everybody's attention. >> now, both campaigns are trying to lower expectations. however, yesterday, during the sunday morning political shows. new jersey governor chris christie predicted that romney will hit a home run and turn the presidential race upside down. mitt romney heads to denver today, ahead of that debate. you can watch the first debate live from denver wednesday night right here. the debate begins at 6:00 p.m. >>> 8:40. one week from today, president obama comes back here to the bay area to raise campaign cash. he will host a $20,000 a plate dinner in san francisco. a concert will follow the dinner. concert tickets start at $100 and go up to 7500 for premium seats and a photo opportunity. at this point, though, the musical guests have not been announced. the notorious bank robbery love birds, bonnie & clyde with still linked to big money. 78 years after their death. >> two of th
but john mccain when that's an increasing part of the population, you're not going to do too well in the election. the folks who have gotten visas under the new obama program sort of the version of the dream act but without the legislative part, he's not going to take that away. that's something we hadn't heard before. he's out with that now. i think he's probably going to run with that and see where it gets him. >> john: mitt romney didn't exactly endorse the president when he made this decision a few months back and i have been of the opinion that mitt romney could get a lot more respect from the republican base if he was willing to buck them and stand up to them a bit and not pander to them all the time. i think our republican friends aren't stupid. they know when someone is trying to pander to them. this is a surprise. suddenly he's embracing this. does it seem to you like it is a ploy to get the conservative latino vote? >> i think that it is a little bit of desperation. it is something you might have expected m
president obama and then the senator and then john mccain. there is no doubt that paul ryan is expecting romney to go very hard at president obam asuggesting that there has been a sort of a misleadingleading ad deceptive framework for the campaign. mr. romny and ryan are trying to frame this as a choice between the dependency society and the romney society, which they say is built on independence and personal responsibility. watch. it. >> i know what president obama has done. i know the empty promises, broken promises. i know the ugly, stagnant economy. what are mitt romney and paul ryan offering to get us back on track? i think that's what we will get out of wednesday. if we get that out, the country understands the choice. >> stop lying, mr. president. >> lying? >> yeah! >> what's the lie? >> governor romney is not talking about tax cuts for the wealthy. he says that the wealthy will take just as much under the romney administration as they paid today. >> you can see jersey governor chris christie saying what mitt romney has been claiming, say that this barack obama ads are false. he w
, others have been around the economy, like in 2008. when the economy imploded, john mccain's advisers say his campaign collapsed with it and never recovered. historians say for an october surprise to have an 11th hour impact, it has to feed into a narrative that already exists, whether carter's ineffectiveness or mccain. >> it's not yur reek a. this is a so surprising, so amazing, but rather people nod, yes. this is where we thought things were going. >> it's possible we may have already seen this election year's october surprise. maybe it was how the candidates reacted to tragedy in libya and the broader unrest in the middle east or mitt romney's infamous 47% remarks. or perhaps one or both of the campaigns is holding out damaging information about the other. or there will be an unfor foreseen event on the world stage. it wouldn't be an october surprise if we knew. >>> dana bash. >>> this is a live picture from the debate location in denver. you can see the podiums are set up on the stage. the seats ready to be filled. once again, the first presidential debate is this wednesday night. to

's overpreparation where the rehearsing backfires a little bit? >> had john mccain on our show on "morning joe" and he talked about that. he said you sit there for weeks on end, rehash and remembering your lines. a point where you have to walk away and be yourself. you had david axelrod say to you the other day that the romney campaign has had more preparation for this than it took to invade normandy so, you know, everybody is setting this funny bar of the other guy's so great. he's unbeatable. >> trying to set expectations low so it will be easy to see them. has this reached the point of absurdity. >> we in the media, what's going to happen in this first debate? what do people think is actually going to happen that -- we've seen thousands of hours, and we haven't seen them together, but other than one of them saying the most horrific thing, what do we think is going to happen that we haven't seen before with these guys? what are we waiting for? >> there's some hope that we will not be aiming towards immedia mediocrity and these two guys are the smartest guys we have available to fix the probl
